    I ran into your blog today – very good. I wanted to introduce BuyGreen.com to you.

    We think we provide a broad selection of products meet all the eco-friendly needs for both Consumers and Commercial buyers.

    What makes us unique is we apply our proprietary Green Standards to every product we carry – http://www.buygreen.com/greenstandards.aspx This allows our customers easy access to both why the product is eco-friendly with one stop shopping.

    Additionally we Carbon Offset all our business activities and shipments – all sent ground. All our packaging is ‘shamelessly reused’ – we have never used a new box. Last we participate in the 1% for the Planet program and offer best in class customer service.

    I was hoping you might put a link to BuyGreen.com on your site?


  2. Could you help to promote our Valentines Day Campaign? Here’s a blog post:

    We all work hard fighting climate change. I do it because I loved snowstorms as a kid, and want my children (when I have them) to be able to experience the magic of snowdays and the satisfaction of hot chocolate after sledding. And I’m ready to tell my elected officials that they should help me make sure that this happens. That’s why I uploaded this picture of me playing in the snow to http://www.iheartcleanenergy.org. Will you join me?

    Why do you care about climate change? We want to get 10,000 emails into Congress before Valentine’s Day showing them why we care about this – not the facts, but the faces and stories and loved ones that makes us do what we do. We’re off to a great start, but right now, I’m asking you for your help in making sure this happens.

    So take a break from running around buying flowers and chocolates for that special someone, and take a minute to share your love for them with the world – and your elected officials. Upload a picture to http://www.iheartcleanenergy.org, and then send an email to your legislators telling them you want to see strong climate legislation passed in Congress in 2009. Then, please tell all your friends and family to do the same, no matter where in the country they live. In order to make a big splash, we need all the help we can get!

    Thanks, and Happy Valentine’s Day!
